About me

Berthet is a doctoral researcher at the Faculty of Social Sciences and a member of the ERC project EUGenDem. Berthet studies the European Parliament's policies on gendered violence and bodily rights, as well as the discursive practices around those and the role of the European Parliament for advancing gender equality. The focus of this research has led Berthet to analyse specific case studies, such as sexual harassment in the European Parliament, the EU's ratification of the Istanbul Convention and the development of a supranational right to abortion in the EU. Berthet most recent publications appear in Social Politics, the International Feminist Journal of Politics and the Journal of Common Market Studies.
